30 Ways in 30 Days
Offer your professional skills to families – give free haircuts, massages, or manicures
Many Ronald McDonald House volunteers approach us with ideas to use their unique talents or professional skills to boost the spirits of families coping with a child's illness or raise money for the charity.
Individuals and businesses donate their services to lighten the spirits of families living at a Ronald McDonald House. For example, a photographer in San Diego has challenged herself to raise $10,000 for RMH San Diego by donating the fees from 100 children's portrait sessions to the charity. Four stylists gave 14 moms living at the Ronald McDonald House of Durham a much-needed lift by offering free makeovers on Mother's Day.If you'd like to use your skills to help Ronald McDonald House Charities, get in touch with your local Chapter or search VolunteerMatch to sign up for volunteer opportunities in your area.
